WHO IS ARTHUR CHU?
A FILM BY: YU GU, SCOTT DRUCKER
STARRING: ARTHUR CHU, ALEX TREBEK, ROCQUE TREM, ELIZA BLAIR
Run Time: 90 minutes (Check out the trailer below)!
Arthur Chu hacked Jeopardy! and won big. Now he’s using his newfound celebrity to battle dark forces on the internet as a blogger and cultural pundit. Raw, unfiltered and poignant, we follow Arthur as he realizes he can only create positive change in the world if he first heals his own wounds by reconciling with his estranged family.
Featuring a Q&A with Scott J. Drucker and Yu Gu, moderated by Chicago-based journalist, Peter C. Baker, a freelance journalist and contributing editor at Pacific Standard magazine. In 2015, he profiled Arthur Chu, and in the years since has written extensively about masculinity and the Internet for New York Times Magazine and Elle. He is a 2017-2018 Carter Center Fellow in Mental Health Journalism.

The University of Chicago’s Taiwanese American Student Association would like to extend an invitation to members of TAP to attend its largest event of the year, The Road Less Traveled: A talk by Jason Y. Lee from the Jubilee Project. The event will take place on Friday, January 22nd from 6:30 to 8:00pm in the International House Assembly Hall at the University of Chicago (1414 E 59th St, Chicago, IL 60637 ). In addition to the talk, the Jubilee Project will be screening a few of their new projects and opening the floor up for a discussion. Attendance is free and light refreshments will be served! The Jubilee Project is a non-profit that inspires change through telling stories and filmmaking. United by their passion for philanthropy and filmmaking, the founders set out to create entertaining content that inspires others to do good. Their videos have attracted the attention of millions of people around the world. Their talk will be centered around their stories and issues of self-identity and awareness. Often times, people try so hard to lead that “perfect” life – building your resume, getting into med school or landing that prestigious job – that they forget why they are in college and what they actually want to do. We hope that through this talk, people will be feel inspired to discover and pursue their passions.
